Absentee voting now open

If you cannot attend our Annual Meeting next month, you can still vote in the co-op's trustee elections!

There are three trustee candidates up for re-election this year.

To request an absentee ballot, you will need to provide your account number that is associated with your membership. This account number begins with an asterisk (*) and can be found on your electric bill statement.

Request a ballot by either:

 • Calling 1-800-239-2385 toll-free, or

 • Emailing clayelectric@clayelections.com and providing the name and account number.

The deadline to request a ballot is no later than April 19 at 3 p.m.

All ballots must be received by April 25 by 4 p.m. via U.S. mail to the designated P.O. Box for the ballots to count.

Ballots will only be mailed to the member’s billing address. There will be no exceptions.

How do I vote?

 • Instructions for completing the absentee ballot are included in the ballot packet.

 • Members will not be able to bring their absentee ballots to the Annual Meeting. Members at the Annual Meeting will only be allowed to vote through the traditional in-person method.

 • Absentee ballots will only be accepted in the return envelope delivered by USPS to the P.O. Box on the return envelope.

 • Absentee ballots will not be accepted at Clay Electric offices or at the Clay County Supervisor of Elections office.

 • Per Clay Electric bylaws, once an absentee ballot is cast, no in-person voting will be allowed for that member at the Annual Meeting.

Prize Drawing

 All members who vote by absentee ballot will be placed in a separate prize drawing contest to win one of five bill credits: one bill credit for $500, one for $250, one for $150 and two for $100. Winners will be notified within two weeks of the Annual Meeting.
